It is insisted thut tbe judpient of |3»S00 is exoesaiwe^ 
indioating prejudioe and passion on the part of the jury. The 
trlibl court and the jury hftd itn opportunity of se«^ii^ the witnesses 
end hearing the testiaosy of the attending %nd other physioiajas, and 
we are unable to s^y that the damages are so exoesstws as to indicate 
prejudice on the part of the jury, particularly as the werdiet ¥^m 
vms concurred in by the trial court in entering judgment on the 
▼erdict. Injuries very similar to those coaiplalned of in this case 
were held sufficient to sustain a jiii^^^nt for 14,000 in the ease of

the original deolsr^^tion was defective, in th.%t it f wiled

The plaintiff's eontentioa that the court should not have 

permitted the defe^Unts to withdraw tbelr pleas ajad file a demurrer

Section 39 affords an op»>ortuaity to the plaintiff to file aa 

aacadsent to the deolaration, notwithstanding the lioitation period 

bad expired; prowided that the cause of aotioa asserted ia the aaend- 

aent grew out of the same transaction or oeourreaoe as set up in the

111, 490. 

Oarnishaent proceedings under the sts^tute of this stste 
covering euoh motions, nre sup elementary to the judgment ^gsinst the 
Judgment debtor, and there can toe no recovery in -^ proceedings 
atjainst the ^,arnishee unless the Judgment debtor might la^int'iin an 
action at Inw against the garnishee for whatever it is th-^t the 
judgasent creditor eeeks to recover against the g rnishee* dRQk of 
^ffjmeypf V, ?lMMJai» S8 111. App. 198, 

There i« no question th.nt the Judgment against the defendant 
was a part of the record in the original case. This proceeding depends 
U5>on the finality of the Judgment against the defendsnt, Hahnemsinn 
Inatitutions of dhlengo, Xnc, and it would seem from this record 
thet the sum due from the gnmishee to the defendant should be appxied 
to the payment of the plaintiff's Judgment,

AM an indio ition thst the Jjudgaent order of the Appellate

error can be corrected without affecting the merits of the 
oa|»e or tbe rights of nppella,nta.* 

froa the iudgiwent of February 24, 1313, the defendants 
appealed to this Court, and %s among the errors asaigned is 
one th^'t the dourt erred in entering two judgments in the

remind the cause for a correction of the judgment, S&it we 
find no re'>.son to do so for a. new trial, there is no error 
affecting the merits of the CMKUse." 

Tha judgoaat order entered in the Appellate Court in the

The ord.r question tb^t this oourt vlll consider Is, did 
tb« defendant exeroiae dlxlgenoe in atovlng that the oourt graAt 
leave te this defead^mt to plead* ?he Judgaent hf oonfeselon mnn 
entered on Jfijauazy 6, X937« and no steps were t«»ke& l^ the defendant 
until April 4, IdSl, when the oourt entered the order granting 
defendant leave to plead* i'hia order was entered aior« than four 
years after the Judgment beosaae 9. matter cf reoord* The rule is well 
established that e aotioa for leare to i>lead shoxild be aiade at 
the earliest moaent* this is essential in order to evoke the juris<- 
diotion of the eourt* 

The defendant oontends that in ffiaklng application to the 
9wat for le!»wo to plead to tt Ji^igsent entered hy eonfeeeion, it is 
improper for the oourt to hes^r and eonsidsr 0ount«r»»iiffidavits upon 
the i^rits of the oontroveray. Thtt is the general rule. The ^pTslle- 
fttion for le?ive to defend la addressed t© the disor®tion of the oourt, 
wbA omlls for the exeroise of the ecfuit^lile power of the oourt over 
its own judgment, aad it shotild not be exeroised for »ere irregular- 
ities or de foots, and it would be unjust unless % good defense is 
shown. 5r,hile n oounter-mffidivit controvert ing the defendant's 
prian fB.oie defense upon tho merits is not pTov^T, atill oountet* 
affidavits nay be entertaiosd upon a, siotion to vaoate a Judgment 
for leave te plead, where the question is prinoipally for the eourt 
to determine iria^etbtr it has juriedlction to sot after t€ra tiae* 

In the instant oase the Judgment by oonfesaion wae entered 
several ye@rs b#fore the order granting the defendant leave to plead 
was entered by the oourt* The important question therefore la one

Th0 «Yideiio« of th« plaintiff la by deposition of 
witness** and domui«nt«ry •▼ld«noe &tt r hed to the depoeltlons. 

The defendant offered no evidence other than sn exeapllfled 
oopy of the certificate of Inoorpor^tlon of the fliaon-^'estern Spirt- 
ing Ooods Oompi^fif, dotted Oeoenber W, i93fO, and an exemplified copy

the sertlfioste of qualifloiitloa of the ftlisoa-weatera Sporting Doodt 
Company* to do huslaess in the Stftte of Illinois* 

At ths close of the plaintiff's evldenee and In order to 
eoafora to the proof offered by the defendant, the defendant asked 
leave to file an Binended affidavit of aa«rlts, which leave waa refused 
upon objections aade by the plaintiff, the defendant contends that 
the trial eourt erred in exoiudlng the defendant's offer of proof, 
and in refusing to peralt the defendent to show that It did not 
enter Into the oontraot with the plaintiff^ In that it was net 
incorporated imtil oeoeasber ^, 1930, whieh was after the alleged 
eontraot wne aade and breaehed* 

It Is evident th«t the eorporatlon known as the Wilson- 
Western Sporting (ioode Ooertany w^s in exlstenoe nsA exercising its 
corporate powers when It entered Into the contract vlth the plaintiff, 
lo defense was offered that the contract was not entered into or a 
oonsequent loss sustained beo!<iuse of the breach by the defendant* 
The ground urged is that the court erred in refusing to a^fliit in 
evidenee the certificate of Ineorporr^tlon dated December 3^0, 19^. 
As a aattST of faot, the corporation named as the defendant Iras 
Sincorpor?!ted in the ye$r 19^5, and In existence at the tlse the 
eontraet was entered late by the parties. It is oontended, however.

the theory that the defendnnt waa sued aa $i p%rty defendant under

Wilson Athletie Uoods Oospany* It is apparent txtm the reoord thiat 

the defendant failed to plead » niaMomrt in abateasnt^ and suffered 

JudgsAnt to be obtained. Therefore, it is not in a position to 

ooaiplain. Xhe rule is that vhen the party intended to be mmtiA

affeoted as thou|(h he were properly naaed therein, unless he tf^kes

and i»0 in effeet* as follotm: 

"Flaintiff ia error's argument that the debentures are non- 
aegoti>%ble is b'^sed priaarily on the olause therein vhieh

of the trustee and of the respective holders of the s^^id 
debentures under the said trust agreeaent.* Plaintiff ic 
error contends that this elause so modifies the unconditional 
promise to pay that it rendera the debentures non-negotiable. 
In order for the clause above quoted to render the debenture 
non-negotiable it must be of such a nature thi«t it qualifies 
or makes uncertain or conditional the unconditional prooise 
to pay. Aether this clause eodifies the unconditional 
provise to pay auat be determined froa the ?«riting itself 
and not froa extlrinsio evidenoe. Section 3 of the Hegotipble 
Inatrudtent set provides th^t an unqualified oi^er or proaise 
to pay is unconditional vithin the seening of the statute 
though coupled with an indioAtion of a particular fund out of 
which reiabursement is to be aade, or a particular aooount 
to be debited with the sflKyuat^ or a ettite«ent of the trans- 
action i^ioh gives rise to the instrument; but an order or

Howewar, as a oiattcr of fft.ct, the instructions to the jury giiren 
by the court at the r#qu«st cf both parties show that the case was 
tried ttoon the theory that it was an ordin«.ry case of negligence, 
in that both sets of inetruotions treiated the auestioa of con. 
tributory neglig«n)ee as applioable ts the fAOta of the case and 
without distlpgulshlng, as a leattftr of law, between an aetion for 
wilful, wanton and mallslous negligenee and one in which the 
negligence was net wilful, wantot: and nallcieus. having submitted 
the ease uoon that theory, it will be rewiewed by tills court fron 
that stsmdpoint.

!Ri« witnese^who appears to hsive been ii^partlal, 9«««s} to 
us to »>:iv« the nore reasonable narration as to th<^ miuoner In which 
thie aecld«nt oecurred, Xh« record fails to show utiy reason why 
defendant should have turned h@r onx to th<^ d^ast en 4Sth street

north, wae going north, and th«re was no reason so thjr as the 
•▼ide&ee discloses why defendant should have turned ^ast into 
4dth street, aiid we think it quite it^probable that she did m>. 
It is not denied that th« damage to th# kanX&y car was at the 
rear part of It, and this fact is quit* consistent with the 
narration d«f<»njant fclvee of the accident. We hold that the 
werdlet of the jusy is thf^refors gainst the naiiifest weight of

tho cotrunitcient order ie not au»t«^ned by tho «vid«meo. It la true 
that rooDondent waa auijudgod ir> eontewpt on teatiaony whloh was 
giT«in by hlfiiioolf and hia fatlt^r wne teatified in hie b€<rialf. Ho 
and hi a father undertook to teatlfy, and the court rightly, we think, 
found hiji guilty on OYidenee 8ul»sittod in hie own behalf.

It i« urgffd that rcApondMit lid n«t r«««iT« a f«ir «a4 in* 
partial heftrln^: that th« Chane«XI«r fro« th« bAginnlni:!; of tht 
iii9fl^in^ was Impatient and unfair ; that he ffla«)« sarenictie amd ooa* 
tamptuoua rcAark* eoiK^erning rear)Ois>le{it »»d wft« dlalnolined to iifimr 
•vld£«io« ori tha part of respondent. It la true that tha k^hanoallar 
•xpreaaed hi a opinien quite freely with reference to the conduct of 
reepoodant, but the oauae was not l>eing hetttd by a jury, nnd ve 
ara InelinK^d to the opinion timt tha GUajae^ilor U. hie re^^&rka 
aerely expressed wUat KUiy just judge would have t^^ought. Ha8|>ond* 
«nt, in our opinion* vali. deferred to h»v» aul(J the thinga '«hieh 
vara said to him. 

It is inaltted that the oourt erred in denying reaponcient 
the rii^ht to file hla sworn anewer to the rule to show o&uaa. The 
rale had expired. Mad «iil though r«e;>ondent hftd been personHO-ly pres- 
ent en several oocaeione with hie oouneel he h%d not app^r^intljr 
theughtit worth while to file his answer until after the hearing 
hm4 ^am begun. Hie tiaie had expired hy remeori of hla own wilful 
negiii^ence, and any leave to file when applleation waa %:«4e would 
have been by gruea rather than by right. However, the court heard 
lii& and hie witneasea t«^etify in open court, trnd ab already 9t:!ited, 
it would seem iiiuat two Chfatcellora have already gone over aubetsua- 
%lally the a^use ground with sub£tunti«lly the esam result. 

The order entered is, in the opinion of thin court, a Just 
and righteous one and It is affimed.

th« oon tract, it used a 1 iphaoa motor; that eomplaint was mada by 
i*f«adant frmk praetioally th« btginning t^at thc» itokar did net 
vork 9ro^«Tly, and plaintiff sent man to thi» apartmant building 
fran tise te tl«a in an ende^aror to •«<» 'o'hat was wrong and to 
rdwraady th» difficulty. flalntiJT ©ff«r«d aoffi© tTidenca to tha 
•ffeot that at^en t#«tt being m%d« it waa found tha etoJkar waa 
operating: nrop^rly* Gn tlia othar hand, we tiiink the oirarRhftliaing 
weight of «Tidenet »howa tnat tha atokar nnritr iid work properly 
and that defendant oontinually made eoi^plaints and in Jtuaucury 
aaked plaintiff to r«i£.ov« tht atoker from tha building bf»oauae of 
the uneati«ffitetr>ry manner in wdaieii it op«rat«d. Ktgotiations w«ire 
earriad on until about A^rll 1st, « plaintiff endeavoring to eee 
that the aotor worked properly, but without suooeee, when at that 
tin* defendant rmaor^^ the etoker beeauee plaintiff refused to do 

Plaintiff adi-'ite that it did net u«e th« 3 phiioe aoter ao 
aientioned in the contract but instead uaed a 1 phaee motor, and 
there waa eomc evidenee tending to show tiat a 1 ^haee motor wae 
•lightly more eTn^eneiTO than a 3 f>hj»ae motor. 

It further ap|»earti frc^ the «vi4ffnce that the Coiotiionweal th 
JSdieon Co., which fumiahed el<?etrioity to the building, apparently 
for lighting purpoeee, on Deoeenb^r 8, 19 51, advised def>?r4dant that 
it would not eentinuQ to furnish power to defendant, partly on 
aeeount of the single phase Motor plaintiff had installed. A 8alee<

refuse'! to 'to thl». There le con»l'1«ralile!i •▼Ittendc In th« racor4 
at to vhtfthar 4f»r«ndant used th* proper kind eV coaX in th« stoker , 
and further evitlenee tHat three different kinds of coal were uaed« 
As stateA» the eTlienoe showe thfit shortly after the stoker was 
Installed eonst»tit complaints were made orally and In writing by 
the def fr.iiait that the stoker was working iis properly; and ttiat 
plaintiff endeavored on numerous oooasione to elluiinate the com- 
plaints Siode, but witnout suooess. 

Plaintiff oen tends, as we understafid it, tiiat even if the 
stoker did not werk properly, defendant eould not rescind the sale 
because he h^id u»ed the sttoker too long, - fror th@ early part of 
fiovember until about 4prii let, The contract entered into between 
the partips was a eonriitional eale, the titl<? to th* stoker remaining 
In plaintiff by the express t«»rEiB oi' th« «ontr&ct, until the 
st8k<»r "fvas fully paid for. the defendant did not use the stoker 
without oo«pl<^int, but was eonmtantly complaining that the stoker 
sewer worked properly. In these oireuu stances we think the con- 
tention of olaintl ff is .untenable. 

A further contention aade by plaintiff ie tuat the eontr^iot 
did not orovide for the pureh^ise of a laotor; but this is contrary 
to the express wording of the contract, part of which we have above 
(pteted. And a further argueient is, tiaat defcrn1«unt aid not proYide 
suitable wiring so a 3 phaee notor might be used. We think this 
•eatention Is wholly without c^erit. i:>laintlff was in the business 
• f selling and installing stokers and vmm sup >osed to be far^illlar 
with this work. The defendant ^xrae not faiallis^ ^rlth the lnet?alling 
of stokers, lils building had already been icired and it was the 
duty of plaintiff to know before it sold the stoker that the build- 
ings ^A* in oroper condition for the installation of the stoker. If 
other wiring were n<»eeiisary, it seems obvious tnat this should hawo 
been brought to def«cdact's attf»ntion before the siile was luade.

Defendant ^^rantad » stoker to h«»t hi« 77-apartiu«nt building and this 
wat iht Job nlalntlff contracted to so. In faet plniintiff in its 
brief e^iya* "rb* intsntien of th« partica was to iu stall an auto- 
mati« eoal ttokor suitable for lieaticg def sndafit *• buildinji. " It 
oould not «xeuee it9«lf after it claimed to hav? aol'i the stoker 
ai^d inetallfid it, by sayinjs tUat the wiring in defendant's build- 
ing vae improper. 

Plaintiff farther eoKtenie that tha contract in question 
contains eatoreee warranties and tho^refors no implied warranties 
trill be pre»;uned, rixxA that there is no evidenoe in ttie record of 
any breach of the expressed warranties mentioned in the contract. 
As «!t>>t^d, we triink the e<vide<?es siio^s that defendar^t r<?lied upon 
plaintiff that the eteker would properly hnat his apartment build- 
ing: ©therwiee, of Gcuree, no contract would have been entered into. 
I'laintlff knew defendant's purpose in buying the etoker aud knew 
that plaintiff was exijectspd to see that the etoker properly performed 
the functions it was supposed to perfona. In these oirouEtstainoss 
«s think the law will imply a promise that the stoker would reasonably 
perform the work interaded by both parties, Section 15 of the Unifons 
Sales Act» chap. 121 A., Cahill's Revised i>tatutes, r^rovides that 
•Where the buyer, expressly or by istplicatlon, makes known to the 
seller the particular purpose for wtiich the goode are required, find 
It appears that the buyer relies en the seller's skill or judgment 
{whether he b* the grower ©r aianufactursr or not), there is an im- 
plied warranty that the goods shall be reasonably fit for such 
purpose." See also Mandsl Bros. ▼. Mulvsy . S3C 111. App. 5 i8. 

For the r«>aeons stated we hold tiiat the finding of the 
trial court is against the manifest weight of the eTidence. The 
judgment of the Municipal court of Chicago will be reversed and

We do not underet^tn^i it la the proper practice to aubicit

eivil eaeea wh*re a jury h'^e been waived tey thp parties. But In 
May wittw of the caae, we tuink the proposltlcna were not applicable 
to the facta as dieclosed by the ewidenee, and therefore were in- 
prapfiT to aulmit to the trial court, the firet proposition ie: 
Could th« eourt legally find the defendant guilty of carrying oon- 
aaaJLed weapona if fro«s all the erlionoe it waa logical to preaume 
that th», defendant had *« gun oonoealed on or about his j»oraon 1»* 
mediately before hia arrest or at ^uiy tiue on th« dmy def Trndaat" 
waa arrested. And the seaoitd proposition was, in <%ffeet, whether 
the offioar, without seeing tha gun coneealed on the peraon of tha 
dafeada&t, or without any reASonable or lixob^ble cause, beli swing 
he was earryinij a concealed weapon, could eeareh and arrest his. 

tf« thinx the ewldenoa shove that the gun was riot oonoes*i«d 
"by the def«9ndant at th« tiase he vas arrested beoause the evideiica 
la that defendant had the r.xn in his hand at the time he was ar- 
rested. There i'% no ftwidenee whatever that It waa oonoealed.

enforced by action clr«ctly against tha resyiltlng eorporatiea axiA 

in support of this contention the defendant relies on par* 39 

of the laattr«)i)ioe Aott whioh prorldett 

''Ho action or proceeding pending at the tine of the

rhls statute does provide th@ prooedure as to pending

was necessary for the purpose of orderly prooedure in the courts 
that the otatuo of p«i4ii« suits ag&lnst const Itucmt oom^^uios be 
not disturbed and that the saMO necessity did not exist as to 
claias upon <hioh no action hac been eoioraenoed and th»t it could

that actions based on auOh claise amat be brought directly against

same extent as a judgment, order or decree of a olroult court dur- 
ing the term at which the eame was rendered In such Circuit court, 
provide^! a motion to vacate, set aside or modify the same be en- 
tered in the Municipal court within thirty days after the entry 
of such Ju'igment, order or decree; that if no motion to vacate, set 
aside or modify such judgment, order or decree shall Toe entered 
within thirty days after the entry of the judgpient, order or decree, 
the same shall not be vacated, set aside or modified excepting upon 
appeal or writ of error, "or by a bill in equity, or by a petition 
to said Municipal court setting forth grounds for vacating, setting 
aside or modifying the same, which would be sufficient to cause the 
same to be vacated, sat aside or modified by a bill In equity; 
Provided, however, that all errors in fact in the proceedings in 
such case, which mlt^.ht have been corrected at common law by the 
writ of error coram nobis may be corrected by motion, or the judg- 
ment may be set aside in the manner provided by law for similar 
cases in the circuit courts." 

This section of the statute has been often construed by 
this court and by the Supreme court, and it has been held that a 
judgment order or deoree of the Municipal court shall become final 
s«id conclusive after thirty days from tlxe entry thereof; that after 
that time it may be set aside or modified only (l) by appeal or 
writ of error, (2) by a bill in equity, (3) by a petition to the 
Municipal court in substance the equivalent of a bill iu equity, 
(4) by a motion analogous to that provided for by section 89 of 
the Practice act, and (5) in any manner provided by law for 
similar cases in the Circuit court. 

The proceeding here, at least in its final phase, was by 
petition in the nature of a bill in equity. The brief of plaintiffs 
seems to be based upon the theory that the proceeding was siiuilar 
to that under section 89 of the Practice act, and it points out
